Hi, I'm Stew Berman  

Coaching can be fun. Self-discovery does not have to be difficult. The game of life can be won and YOU are in control. Unless of course you don't think so.

    We will never forget about the masterful coaching you provided us with. You heard us out, helped us get off the mat, dust ourselves off, and keep moving forward. Your compassionate and witty approach helped re-install confidence and optimism. You helped us take responsibility for some of our choices while providing acknowledgment of and compassionate for our circumstances. Most importantly, you helped us to reaffirm what’s most important to us… our marriage, lives together, then our family and friends, then our jobs.
Of equal importance is that I can now envision success. Thank you so much Stew Berman!! We are so grateful for everything!


  • from Kate M. Portsmouth, NH on 28 Mar 2016

    The six week professional coaching seminar with Stew was excellent! Stew has a unique ability to get right to the heart of the matter and really make you think. I chose to have Stew coach me personally as a training tool so I could have the full coaching experience. Stew asked incredibly poignant questions that cut through the facades and helped me to identify behaviors and patterns in my life that were causing me distress. Stew helped me to identify limiting thoughts and behaviors and reevaluate my goals. Through this process, Stew helped me breakthrough an obstacle in my life that has been life changing. I think what makes Stew’s work so powerful is that he truly sees the beauty in people and helps them to see it in them selves.

    The partnership I have with my coach, Stew Berman, has changed my life. His ability to listen and keep me on track is phenomenal and he does it with empathy and humor. As a result, I am growing in my ability to challenge myself to be confident and effective in every aspect of my life. I am in my 60's and I have discovered that it is never too late! I am excited about my life now and curious about the future. For these reasons, Stew has my heartfelt gratitude for his insight and guidance. I read something the other day that made me think of Stew. I don't know who wrote it. 

'Some people come into our lives and quietly go.......... 
Others stay a while. and leave footprints on our hearts........ 
And we are never the same.........'


  • from P.Y. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on 06 Jan 2016

    Stew Berman is a honest, sincere, dedicated and compassionate coach. I always felt completely comfortable talking with him because I knew he wouldn't judge me...instead, he would listen and ask penetrating questions that made me think. I always felt as though he was giving 110%. Thank you Stew!


  • from Sandy Madison. Detroit, MI on 13 Aug 2015

    Stewart's ability to listen and help me reframe the situation I was in helped me to rethink my position at work. I had no goals, no strategy, or no idea how to formulate either. After just 5 months of working with Stew, I have been able to switch careers, increased my income and feel better about all aspects of my life. Stewart is always warm, insightful, upbeat, and nurturing while challenging me to do more, and be my true self.


  • from Dana Paulson. Patterson, NJ on 30 Jun 2015

    From the very first session with Stew, I felt as though I had known him for a very long time. I was able to slip into a comfortable groove and let down all defenses, pretenses and spoke what I was really experiencing. Stew's ability to really listen to what I was saying was nothing short of amazing. This listening prompted his very insightful questions that really made me look inward for the answers. I have never experienced a relationship like this before with anyone. Stew's skill is unmistakable! I am now more focused, feeling a deeper sense of self and much more positive about my life and outlook. My growth is ongoing and expanding possibilities like never before. I am telling anyone that will listen to try a coaching session with Stew. This experience is one I will take with me for the rest of my life. Wishing you a heartfelt thanks Stew Berman!!


  • from Wendy Walter, Portsmouth, NH on 06 Jun 2015

    We all need a touchstone, a place, way or person to go to, to remind us of what we have forgotten. To remind us of our strengths, to remind us to live out those strengths, and to remind us of the beauty way, to walk in beauty as the Native Americans say.


    Stewart Berman is this touchstone for me. Through his wisdom and work he had held up a mirror so that I can see and remember all the good, positive, energy that I carry. I have accomplished uncountable goals because of this continuous gift in perception of myself. His ability to perceive my needs and to get to the core issues is a gift. I would highly recommend him as a passionate, committed life coach.


  • from Paul Gainer. Canton, OH on 06 Mar 2015

    As a direct result of coaching with Stew, all of my relationships have dramatically improved. Most importantly, the relationship I have with myself is significantly different and most assuredly healthier.


  • from Sarah Pruett. Winthrop, MA on 25 Jan 2015

    My partnership with Stew has proven to be most successful. I set a goal regarding my weight and fitness level. Through and by his coaching, I have achieved my goals and the change in lifestyle is sustainable. He helped me get to the heart of the matter. No diets, no scales, no food journaling. I was nurtured and pushed, he was gentle but firm, and put together a perfect recipe for a perfect outcome. I am telling everyone that wants to make real change to work with Stew.


  • from Jennifer Marden. Atlanta, GA on 18 Oct 2014

    Stew Berman is a gentle soul that I am so blessed to have had cross my path. Since coaching with Stew, my life has done a complete turnaround. I am seeing just about everything differently, more positively, and am now excited about my future. Prior to coaching with Stew I saw little or no possibilities and now have an attitude of gratitude everyday. My decision to invest in myself via this coaching relationship has been the best move I have made to date.


  • from Martin Sommers. Philadelphia, PA on 20 Sep 2014

    I had previously been coached by two different coaches at challenging times of my life. My experience with Stew has been far above and beyond any I have had. My wife, friends, and co-workers have all noticed a marked improvement in me in all ways. He has provided me with new tools to navigate my life and I am forever grateful that I chose Stew to partner with me.


  • from Mary Trent. Los Angeles, CA on 06 Aug 2014

    I am delighted to write a testimonial for Stew Berman. There were three people in my life that had the greatest impact on me. My Mother, my Father, and my 6th grade teacher Mrs. Holden. I now have the fourth person in Stew Berman. He has profoundly impacted me and has guided me through a most challenging time of my life. At 47 years old, I was facing job burnout and other personal issues that had been with me for a long while. Stew listened carefully and asked me questions I had never thought of. He remained standing by me like a rock and believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. He asked me to take action in each session so I could make things happen. I am now so clear about who I am, alive, and in a place of self-love like never before. Stew is a masterful coach, kindhearted and as sensitive a man as I have ever met. I am in deep gratitude for our relationship which I know will continue to impact me forever.


  • from Paul Tamson. San Francisco, CA on 17 Jul 2014

    Stew Berman: Soft spoken, great listener, powerful questions.


  • from Nicholas Yaster. Durham, NH on 26 May 2014

    Since coaching with Stew, I have a higher awareness of self and now operate from a higher level of personal integrity. Stew’s coaching has helped me be more focused and on purpose and I now see the world in a completely different (better) way. What a great investment in myself this has been!


  • from Martha R. Hampton, NH on 10 May 2014

    Being coached...and being coach by Stew...Two of the best choices I've ever made!


  • from Andrew Frederick Escondido, CA on 25 Apr 2014

    It is all how you think about it" is my biggest take away from coaching with Stew. I have retrained my patterns of thinking as a result of coaching with Stew and now I am much more keenly self-aware. No more self-sabotaging and no more limiting beliefs. Awesome! Great coaching and an invaluable use of my time.


  • from Tony Meehan. Wichita, KS on 06 Mar 2014

    It is truly an honor and pleasure to write a testimonial for my coach Stew Berman. Stew's coaching has had a major impact on my life. Through and by the specialized relationship we created, I have become empowered like never before. I have learned how to be proactive versus reactive. I am calmer, making better choices about everything, and have profited in all areas of my life since entering this coaching relationship. I am more in touch with myself than ever before. Without reservation I recommend Stew to anyone that can use an objective, nonjudgmental, caring soul (with a great sense of humor) that can partner with you and move you in a forward and more positive direction.


  • from Elizabeth Weider. Los Angeles, CA on 06 Mar 2014

    After just three sessions of working with Stewart, I was amazed as to how I was able to shift my thinking about my current dilemma. My 16 year marriage had lost the spark it once had. I did not feel I was making any progress from numerous discussions with my husband. I sought out a therapist but quickly realized that I was not depressed but instead in need of a new perspective. Stew's listening skills were amazing! He heard what I was saying as well as what I was not saying. His questions helped me to probe my inner truth, revealing what I was really thinking and hence experiencing. I have been empowered now to make decisions that reflect my authentic self and have mobilized in to a more positive direction. Stew's coaching has proven to be an invaluable investment in myself and my marriage.


  • from Elizabeth Yelway Long Island, NY on 06 Mar 2014

    When I met Stew on a complimentary coaching call, I was stuck. My personal life, my physical fitness and my career were all painfully in need of help. I got exactly what I needed from my relationship with Stew. I have never met anyone who listens as well or who cares as much. It made all the difference in the world to me. Stew Berman is a great coach and mentor and without his support, I do not think I would be doing so well right in all these areas of my life as I am now


  • from Ben Groomer. Boston, MA on 24 Feb 2014

    I have worked with three life coaches before hiring Stew Berman. The experience I have had with Stew places him, in my view, as a world class coach and the benefits of our partnership continue to pay dividends every day of my life.


  • from Robin & Carl Adams. Boston, MA on 17 Feb 2014

    When we came to Stew for coaching, our marriage was stuck. The love was there but he passion had ebbed. Counseling was ineffective so we decided to try coaching. After 9 sessions, we are back on track and have learned to listen carefully to each other. Things turned around dramatically and we are the happiest we have been in years. Stew was instrumental in helping us to reframe our relationship and helped us to enhance our true appreciation for each other. We are so very grateful.


  • from Samuel Greene Dallas, TX on 27 Jan 2014

    Stew Berman has a wonderful combination of pragmatism, spirituality, and heart. As my coach, he consistently delivered excellent support, insight, caring and coaching expertise on every coaching call I had with him. I have recommended him to everyone I know that wants to be the best version of themselves they can be.


  • from Shannon Grindrod 
Flatbread Company Assistant Manager Amesbury, MA on 06 Sep 2013

    I started going to Stew when his services were offered to me by The Flatbread company. I did not know what to expect at the time but it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Stew was so open and caring that I instantly felt so comfortable that I opened right up and was able to talk about difficult situations. Stew helped me recognize my blind spots as a manager and helped me improve my awareness of my surroundings and self. Everyday I think about the tools I learned in sessions with Stew, these tools help me handle situation in a more effective way with my role as a manger and role as a mother. I am very happy I had the opportunity to learn from Stew.


  • from Tyler Ulrich Hartford, CT on 26 Aug 2013

    I was referred to Stew by a colleague that was struggling in her professional life. After just one complimentary session with Stew, I experienced a shift and knew in my heart that he was a gifted life coach and that I was in good hands. After 9 sessions with Stew, I have a refreshed view of my career, and as a result am happier, more productive and do not feel like I want to switch careers. Thank you Stew Berman!


  • from Terri Labbe Derry, NH on 24 Aug 2013

    Stew is a masterfully skilled coach. In a short time, he assisted me in identifying my core values, which paved the way to clarity of purpose and a plan for change. He was 150% invested in the process and readily available along the way.


  • from Denise Ramirez 
San Ramon, CA on 31 Jul 2013

    Stew Berman helped change my life around. I was aware of changes I wanted to make, but completely unsure of how to go about it. Combined with self-doubt and a lack of motivation, I was going around in circles. He gave me the tools to think clearer, to be myself, to be more aware of me, which helped boost my self esteem dramatically. No one can make decisions for you or determine how you feel. Don’t let situations define who you are. Stew helped me realize my own value, and I will always be grateful to him for that.


  • from Gary Marden 
Portsmouth, NH on 03 Jul 2013

    Stew was completely invested in my personal growth and provided me with invaluable insight, support, and self coaching tools which will serve me for the entirety of my life.


  • from Shirley Freistat 
Brow Master Inc. Miami, Florida on 15 Jun 2013

    One of the best calls I ever made was to my coach Stew Berman. I was very stuck. His coaching helped me move forward in many aspects of my life. I am forever grateful. 
Thank you Stew
